Corporate history and activity
UBQ Materials transforms 80% of domestic trash that is not usually recycled before it gets to landfills, in a process that produces no emissions, uses no water, and does not generate waste. UBQ turns household waste into a composite material similar to plastic, but that is sustainable and carbon negative, and bio-based. The production process reduces household waste into basic organic components at pseudo-molecular level; the natural components reform and bind together to form composite material with thermoplastic properties. UBQ Materials are upcycled composites which are sustainable, recyclable, and competitively priced for the marketplace today. The production of a ton of UBQ material diverts twelve tons of carbon dioxide from the environment, making it the most environmental thermoplastic material available.
Scientists including Nobel Prize Laureate chemist Roger Kornberg, Hebrew University biochemist Oded Shoseyov, and Connie Hedegaard, former European Commissioner for Climate Action serve on UBQ's advisory board.
